Trusted DUI Lawyer Near Elkmont AL
Looking For A DUI Lawyer In The Elkmont AL Area? Trust Harlan D. Mitchell!
In the more recent years, the state of Alabama has been more strict and instated harsher DUI laws - and increased penalties to follow suit. If you or a loved one have received a drunk driving charge, you will face serious consequences that can affect your family, employment, standard of living, and even your normal way of life. This is true even if this is your first offense! Under the Alabama laws, there are no work permits or limited privilege driver's licenses available during your suspension. This means you won't be able to legally operate a vehicle for any reason whatsoever.
If you're convicted, the consequences can be severe or even long-lasting. They can include (but are not limited to):
- Potential jail time
- Substantial fines
- Ignition interlock installation
When facing severe legal consequences like these, you need an equally aggressive defense on your side. With years of experience in defending those accused of DUI and over a decade of experience as a police officer, Harlan Mitchell knows how to thoroughly cross-examine police officers and successfully contest even the toughest prosecutors.
Unless we can negotiate a plea deal to minimize consequences, we will aggressively try your case in court.
